what albums remind you of when you were a kid and what connection do they have to your childhood?

I didn't really listen to anything myself until I was probably 12 or so. Just didn't care about music at all before then. So anything I remember would just be something my parents would listen to. I wouldn't go out of my way to really listen to any of them, but if they came on they would probably make me happy and I would most likely know all the words

Graceland by Paul Simon, anything that Johnny Cash wrote, and the Pulp Fiction Soundtrack are the big three. They bring back the most memories of like summer, and being in the car going on vacation or something. Like if some of those songs start I can pretty vividly remember being 8 or 9 and in the back seat driving 8 hours to visit my aunt on Martha's Vineyard or something. Make me feel all good. Also sad tho at the same time :/

Only the stuff My parents used to listen to, The Doors and The Animals stand out the most, probably because of the keyboards.

the thing is, you can't make those nostalgic feelings appear out of nowhere.

that's part of what makes them so special i think.

I'm trying but all of mine are basically 'this song makes me nostalgic of times spent with *this person*' which isn't very interesting.

The most important of these is rather embarrassing.

Whenever my friend and I (we live in different cities now) see each other we have a corny ending ceremony involving this:

if i listen to stuff from when i was kid it doesn't always hit me.

luckily though, every time, and i mean every time i listen to Head Over Heels by Tears For Fears it reminds me of going to elementary school. every day my mom would play the cassette in the car and skip it to that song for me. we'd pull up to the carpool lane and she'd be all "laaaa da da da da, la da da da da da, laaaa laaaa laaaa laaaa la la"

this shit was my jam when i hit my pre-bipolar depressive phase around 8th to 9th grade. i still really like a few staind songs just cause they were on the radio so much. i have a few of their albums but i only listen occasionally.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MaQgPtR75FY

their unplugged is 1000x better than anything else they ever did i listened to it as i was withdrawing recently. it was actually fairly relevant and not to get sappy but listen to this guy struggle made feel a little stronger. seriously, i almost want to email him or something and tell him. here's the unplugged version, it's obv better.

Goin Back to Texas by Don Edwards cuz when I was 7 we were driving to Arizona for the first time that I can remember, this was in the car and I listened to it nonstop for a few months after. (later that year, we actually did drive to Texas to meet the doctor who delivered me when I was born and this was still in the car so that worked out well). We didn't own a car at the time since it was too expensive, just rented when necessary, so one time we left it behind by accident and spent months looking for a new one in every CD store we came across. I was so so so upset and we did find a lot of other don edwards albums which we bought but not this one. Finally, many years later, my dad ordered it on amazon for my birthday. Everyone I knew thought I was weird for listening to it and then they put one of the songs in Grizzly Man so suddenly they changed their minds about it lol.


A few months before all this I went to Disneyland because it's the happiest place on earth and got a Disney album from the store there. It became my "driving within California" album and i remember the first song on it was you've got a friend in me, then hakuna matata, then go the distance. One time we went to tahoe with my cousin's family and I accidentally threw a snowball at her (was aiming for my grandma) and she got mad at me and on the way back, broke the CD in half. I was so sad and I am still very sad because I don't remember what it was called but I still remember what the cover looked like. My aunt bought me a Disney cassette/songbook to make up for it (it had the tiki room song, 3 grinning ghosts, and the yo ho pirates song. I still have the songbook!

I didn't really listen to much music until I was 12 or so. But I remember one of the first albums I got into was Toxicity by System Of A Down. Still one of my favorite bands.
#39
the only thing i can think of is All-American Rejects were my favorite band in 5th grade and the first band i was really into. when i first started getting to really know my best friend was around this time and we were sitting by each other in our mandatory choir class. for some reason he opened up his folder and inside was a Move Along cd and it made me think "omg this friendship cannot be broken now" and i've never really freaked out about music with anyone before that

Job For A Cowboy's "Doom" EP and the Palaces album from Lamb of God hold a special place in my heart because that's what I was listening to a lot in 8th grade when I started to really get into music. Anytime I listen to those or really anything from that era I have flashbacks to when I was like 12 or 13 walking to/from school in the winter and getting rides from random strangers in sketchy cars
